FWIW, Belvest's models are all over the road in terms of cuts due to the large amount of private labeling they do. There's no arguing with the quality and they are a bit of a "sleeper" brand for that reason, but I've seen jackets I'd wear in a heartbeat (soft and slim) and others I wouldn't be seen in (beefy shoulders and big bodies). If you can't try it on or know exactly what the tag is telling you in terms of the cuts, it sounds like a crap shoot at best. Based on...
Hi- Could you provide outsole measurements and what size you usually take? I think these will work and am interested in taking them. Thanks innadvance, Tom
Gorgeous suit and a great seller - if this was one size smaller you'd all be looking at a "SOLD" sign!
It does - double breasted, patch pockets, martingale 1/2 belt and a pair of peak lapels so big you could land a Harrier jump jet on them. Polo Blue Label made in Italy, so I am guessing Corneliani. Gorgeous, classic coat but outrageously priced at retail. And that was $250 shipped...
Take a look on ebay. I picked up a Polo camel hair polo coat (the one with the flapped breast pocket) a few months back for $250 - it had the tags on it and retailed for $1800...
Big props for Gustin's customer service. After dicking around on sizing choices based on the fit of some old APCs, I ordered a pair of the heavyweights over the winter and was impressed when they showed up. Then I pulled em on and couldn't close the waist. I'm all for raw stuff stretching out, but this wasn't even close… I mean, we're talking a couple of inches that couldn't be bridged by the time-tested "suck it in fatty" methodology. Shot off an email and they climbed...
Nearly new/ lightly worn (+/- 10 times) pair of classic Chippewa Engineer Boots in black Size 10.5/EE. These are the shorter version, but have the double buckles, fully leather lined, protective steel toes, block heel with non-lug vibram sole that shows virtually no wear. Note on sizing: These guys tend to run narrow which is why I went with the wider version. They should be fine for a D or E width. Outsole measurements (note width of welting on sole): Length: 12...
Well, Bridgens didn't work out but I just scored these - same last in a G width - with the refund: http://www.herringshoes.co.uk/product-info.php?&shoeid=5251&colourid=2751&brandid=6 My first pair of Chelseas, but I'm surprised at how much I like them. Went with my regular size and the fit is terrific. Got them in suede, so I can't comment on the leather quality of the calf versions. I think they will be deep in the regular rotation once the fall rolls around As noted...
Another alternative on the same last is the Chelsea, but with options of two widths: http://www.herringshoes.co.uk/product-info.php?&shoeid=5251&colourid=2751&brandid=6 I recently bought them in suede, so can't comment on the leather but it's a great looking shoe. Herring's service was impressive - I had them on the US west coast in just over a week.
Hi, Can you shoot me the outsole measurements ion these when you get a chance? Thanks in advance, Tom
